The Reading Area Firefighters Museum is committed to the preservation of the Liberty Fire Station, built in 1876, at S. 5th and Laurel Sts., Reading, PA. The building contains firefighting memorabilia, antique furnishings, and the John Wanamaker designed “best room”. The Liberty Fire Company No. 5 firehouse, located at the southeast corner of South Fifth and Laurel Sts. in the Callowhill Historic District, is one of the most important architectural and historic landmarks in the City of Reading and Berks County. Of the 12 firehouses constructed in Reading in the late 19th century between 1870 and 1899, the Liberty No. 5 is the oldest of these that is still functioning as a firehouse.
